Need a little advice...

Postby KaileyH » Tue Nov 27, 2012 7:16 am

My DH and I have been TTC our first baby for about 8 months now, I am 22 and he is 21 so I thought that it would be quick and easy, but I guess that God is giving us some extra time. I have been tracking my BBT for about two weeks now and everything seems VERY erratic. I thought that I was staying above my coverline for AF to come soon, but I just had a HUGE drop in temperature. WHAT IS GOING ON?? Maybe I'm doing this wrong. ANY advice would help thank you.

Chart below- I'm not sure which one will work... or if any of them will..

I'm pretty new to this stuff, but from what i understand, you are supposed to be very careful to not do anything else before taking your temp--even staying laying down and not talking and immediately taking your temp when you are awake. Oh, and that you need at least 3 hours of sleep (or is it 5??) to get an accurate basal temp. Other than that, I am pretty uncertain about what patterns to look for and what they mean. Hopefully someone more experienced will post...good luck!

Thanks, I just hope I can figure it out soon I only found out this month about all the temping and CM it all seems like so much.

I know what you mean. I decided not to temp for now. This is my first cycle ttc, and I am hopefully about to O in the next few days. I'm OPK testing at least twice a day when I can and tracking my cm. If I don't get my BFP in the next couple months, I probably will start temping, but for now I'm trying not to get too crazy and stress too much. Good luck to you!
